First time poster here coming from Reddit. I was told that I could find the advice I was looking for by coming here. Sorry, if I'm not posting in the proper thread. At any rate I could use some advice. I'm currently in the market for a high quality, stylish, double rider style jacket and I've been eyeing products from the above companies. Currently I'm leaning towards Langlitz as I've been in correspondence with them, but I was wondering if I could get everyone's thoughts on the various companies. It seems that people have really hit or miss experiences with Lost Worlds. I've also heard that Lewis' leather quality can be a bit iffy. Can anyone share some experiences?
Now here's the big footnote to my current venture, I don't ride (not yet anyway.) Given that, is it really worth investing in something like Langlitz or would I be better off with something else? Currently I'm budgeting up to $1800 for this so I'm pretty flexible with what's available. I do love the aesthetic of the SLP riders, but that is a bit out of my price range. ToJ is now defunct, so reasonably affordable MTM jackets seem out of the question. Sorry if I'm rambling at this point. I've never dropped this much cash into a garment before so I'm being very cautious. Thank you for all your time.
